Random Thursday: Madness, Moonshine, and Two Very Strange Videos

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

It’s too bad that our combined pastry-decorating talents are barely enough to frost a cookie.

Maybe we should go with our strengths and make Zombiebread cookies this year?


I Don’t Even Know, So Please Don’t Ask

His name is Dan Menendez. The juggler, I mean.  I think.

I enjoyed this more the second time.  The first time, I kept an eye on the ventriloquist’s dummy, in case it moved . . .


*Bookstore clerks are too busy to snerk at this stuff this time of year—they barely have time to breathe.
